We’re packed and ready to go! All the art prints have been printed and framed, the quality is amazing and we’re really happy with them. On Monday (8th) we’ll be setting up the gallery and getting everything ready for the 9th April public opening. It’s taken a lot of work to get to this point and it’s not been easy, but we’re sure the hard work will be completely worth it. At the show, the exhibition catalogue will be available to purchase and take away – all of the art prints will also be available for purchase along with a number of original pieces.
If you’re coming along be sure to check out the Mail Me Art section too; there will be mail art from “Open All Hours” and “Apocalypse” on display. On this occasion the mail art will not be for sale, but if you’re interested in purchasing any of the work be sure to let us know. We can note your name down and reserve it for you when it does become available at a future date. Mail Me Art is taking a back seat on this occasion, but we hope to dedicate a full show to the project when time allows. We just thought the least we could do was make the collection publicly viewable while we had the wall space since we’ve been hiding it away since 2015 and the last actual Mail Me Art exhibition was in 2013.
Obviously the gallery will be open and the Jules Verne artwork will be on display from Tuesday ’til Friday, and all are welcome to visit us and take a peek at our illustrators’ wonderful creations, but Thursday is the day you want to be there if you can only make one viewing. The open-to-all private viewing (yes, we know that’s an oxymoron) will be on Thursday 11th April between 6pm and 8:30pm followed by an all-are-welcome gathering at the Fitzroy Tavern, just down the road after the show. Reserving a ticket via eventbright means we have an idea of how many are coming along and we can make sure the free bar is stocked with enough beer, but a ticket will not be required for entry.
Below is a random selection of about a third of the work we’ll have on display at the gallery.

We can’t wait to meet you all, so please come and say hello, and enjoy a drink with us. All staff will be wearing red ID tags and I (Darren) will be at the gallery every day of the exhibition throughout the week – I’m happy to do portfolio reviews, with the exception of Thursday, as long as you let me know what time and day you’d like to meet prior to your visit. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or message me via one of my social profiles to make arrangements.
